Husband of the inspiring Dr Kate Granger MBE

Co-founder of the #hellomynameis campaign

Global Campaign Ambassador



‘Play the cards in life you’ve been dealt’ – these words are what Kate and I lived by and we certainly lived life to the full everyday – even before Kate’s terminal cancer diagnosis.


Hello, my name is Chris and I am one half of the awesome duo that is ‘Chris & Kate’.    Our lives were turned upside down around 6 and a half years ago when Kate was diagnosed with terminal cancer whilst we were holidaying in California.


Since that point we concertinaed our lives into a shorter period and crammed a huge amount into Kate’s time on this planet.  Along the way we have risen over £335,000 for good causes, travelled the world, met many celebrities and royalty and started a global campaign that improves patient care through the basic message of introductions entitled #hellomynameis.  Kate’s legacy is huge and her name will live on forever through her legacy and various awards named in her honour.


Kate and I were fortunate enough to know what was coming and to be able to make plans accordingly for both Kate and for myself post Kate’s death.  I am now on a 12 month sabbatical from my career and actively talk at conferences around the world to ensure the campaign continues for many generations to come.


Thank you all for playing your part in keeping Kate’s legacy alive and improving healthcare.


Through adversity comes legacy.
